Moving Tips
Moving is a huge task. First Nation Moving System offers the following tips to make the process more manageable.

Before The Move
Contact your post office to fill out a change-of-address form.
Arrange to disconnect your gas, electric, phone, and any other utilities.
Arrange to connect your gas, electric, phone, and other utilities in your new location.
It is best to select a moving company and to schedule your move well in advance. Keep in mind that summers are very busy, as are the very ends/beginnings of the month.
Sell, give away, or donate unwanted items.
If you live in an apartment, notify your management that you are moving, and ask for a Certificate Of Insurance (COI). Our movers usually need to see this document, so please have it on hand.
Create your own inventory list of everything you are moving, and keep this list with you.
If you clean your possessions before they are moved, you will have an easier and more pleasurable time settling into your new location.
Moving Day
Confirm all delivery details with your foreman.
Walk-through every room of your old location to make sure nothing was left behind.
Arrive at your new location while the movers are there to acknowledge delivery of the inventory.

Wipe down cupboards and shelves before you unpack.
Let electrical appliances return to room temperature before plugging them in.

Summary: Damaged furniture, broken ceramics in crushed boxes, and much higher cost that the estimate. I have never written a bad review of a company before, but I feel that I have to in this case. First Nation Moving System moved 6 legal bookcases, some furniture, and about 35 boxes across the country. To begin with, I had carefully measured the square footage of all items, and was aware that the total footage in the truck would be a bit more due to the packing and wrapping involved. Well, the square footage that ended up being in the truck was so much greater, so the cost was much higher than our estimate. I would have had to have the guys unload the truck in order to verify my estimate, and that was not going to happen.
The movers at both the starting and ending points were all working so fast and furiously that it was impossible to see how they could be working carefully. I kept asking them to be careful, and they regarded be with annoyance.
The result was damaged items. 4 glass doors to the legal bookcases had glass that was totally shattered. Also, 2 bases to the bookcases had wood that was broken. One wooden leg on a table was broken, and there were many new scratches on the bookcases. Several boxes were broken and somewhat crushed, so badly that 3 ceramic pieces were broken. This was even though I had double boxed them: wrapped each item separately in bubble wrap and clothes, packed in a box, then packed in a second box with bubble wrap, clothing and crumpled paper. They must have been thrown, dropped and/or had very heavy items placed on top of them to get damaged through all of that wrapping.
So, in total, this was an extremely upsetting and unsatisfactory experience. I definitely would not recommend this moving company.

I moved a long distance. I thought it was going to cost me an arm and leg. But with First nation moving system quote was lower than other companies that quoted me. I was able to meet my budget with them. I am praising First nation because without them I was going to pay a lot for my move. I received all my items without being damage. I recommend them because they have great prices and your belongings will be handling with amazing care.

Bob and I can’t thank you enough for the smooth move we had to our new place. There aren’t enough words to say how we feel about you. We hated dropping them off at the airport. Our 3 experiences with them was such a pleasure. We would have kept them here if we could have. Guys, we will have no hesitation recommending First nation moving system for local or long distance. It was so nice to finally be able to put a face to the voice on the phone.

I used First nation moving system twice already, and they are the best moving company I’ve used in my past 10 years in USA as a forever-renter.
(1) Punctual: For twice in a row, they came 10 minutes early.
(2) Detailed Breakdown: You can see exactly what they are charging you for, how much, etc. Every line item that adds to your bill is broken down. They are honest.
(3) Hardworking employees: The movers are always on the move, works hard, and don’t waste time.
(4) Competitive Pricing: I called 10 different moving companies and found them competitive. I just went with these guys again because I know I can trust them.
(5) Truck: Truck is clean (I checked), spacious, they don’t bring a tiny toy van. It’s also just your stuff, not mixed in with other people’s things.
It makes my day easier, which is what everyone needs when you’re moving. It’s crazy enough that I don’t need extra headache. I’ll use these guys again.

There aren’t many things worse than moving. In fact, I absolutely hate the entire process. But it’s a part of life in the big cities because you either find yourself as an innocent bystander in an illegal subletting scheme or your building gets sold less than a year after you move in. I’m not bitter. The next worst thing is finding reputable movers that will charge you a fair price, will show up on time, and won’t break all your valuables in the process. All of these criteria were met by First nation moving system particularly the two amazing movers they sent. The quote process was made easy by their online tool which made it simple to not forget items you intend on packing. The quote came in at a very reasonable price for the amount of items I was moving. The movers showed up on time (which is extremely rare these days). The move only took a few hours and all my items were in one piece. To top it all off, the movers were as friendly as can be that was a nice added benefit to the process. Unlike past movers, I never felt like I was inconveniencing them. Overall, this was a top notch customer service experience and I won’t think twice about using them for future moves. You shouldn’t either.

We used these guys from First nation moving system this weekend for my move and they were fantastic. Everyone at this company seemed to be extremely efficient. My fiancée and I spoke about sitting back and relaxing while the movers took care of everything and they did just that. All items were carefully but efficiently moved. We moved from our old house to a new one a considerable amount of distance away and everything was completely moved in about a few hours without issue. Efficient, great prices and friendly guys- I couldn’t have asked for more. We would 100% use these guys in the future and recommend them to anyone moving.

We recently moved from a three story townhouse to a one story house 350 miles away and used First nation moving system after narrowing it down to a couple companies through reviewing websites. My husband made the appointment and found them helpful and responsive. On the day of the move, they arrived on time and worked hard. They took care of my breakables and did not damage anything. The only issue is that it took A LOT longer than the estimate to move- guess we had more than we thought and definitely should have sprung for the 3rd guy. But all in all, we are happy with our move and hoping not to have another one for a while. These guys charge the right amount and do not try to rip you off- I’m not sure if the same can be said about any other moving company out there.

I moved a couple weeks ago and used First nation moving system – it was a great move. This is my second move in the last 3 years. My previous move – with a different company – was a terrible experience. I made sure to do my research this time around and chose these guys. They arrived on time, were friendly and communicative, worked very efficiently and made the whole process seamless. They worked seamlessly with each other packing, loading and delivering my valuables without any issues. There was not a single item that suffered any damages during the course of this move and their prices are very affordable too. I will definitely be calling them if/when the need arises in the future.

The manager of First nation moving system responded to my request for a quote within the hour. Rather than reply with a cut and paste, pre-written, general quote like other companies, he asked detailed questions and even asked for a picture. I had a single item that needed to be moved from the third floor of an apartment to the first floor of another building a sizable distance away. He quoted me a flat price rather than the usual hourly rate with a 3 hr minimum like the several other movers I requested quotes from. His price was fair. His two men were timely. These two men who were sent from the company were highly skilled and extremely efficient and finished the job without any issues. I would definitely use their service again.

We are completely satisfied with First nation moving system. They were extremely fast and careful. When you hire movers, you always wonder if they will be careful with your appliances and how quick they will really be. The three movers who handled our move were the best. They were careful, communicated with us about each step of the process, polite, and on top of that super quick. They helped us move over 300 miles in under 5 hours! They quote slightly higher in the beginning but from what we read they always try to come in lower, just in case they underestimate the time it takes. But they definitely work with you and there were no glitches in the end. Their pricing was definitely good. I would 100% use them again and even request the same team!

First nation moving system actually charged me less than their original quote! I should also add that their low quote was the reason why I hired them in the first place. The moving process was very smooth. Their crew arrived earlier than the scheduled time. They wasted absolutely no time and were done in a short time. When they delivered everything, we checked the inventory and everything was in great condition. I still don’t how this company manages to be so efficient and charge so low!

First nation moving system quoted me really low; in fact theirs was the lowest among the top 10 moving companies I considered. Though they are new in this sector but they are extreme efficient and truly made for this business. They maintained their schedule and everything was done with professionalism and efficiency. Their movers were strong and experienced. All my belongings were safely transported within a matter of days. I paid the exact amount they asked for at the beginning. In return, they managed to deliver all my items without any damages. It was a very smooth and trouble free experience.

First nation moving system was not just a moving company when they moved my belongings last month. They were my moving companion. They showed up on time and worked very efficiently. In a very short amount of time, they finished packing and loading everything from my 3-bed house. I give credit where credit is due and these movers deserve all the credits I can give them. The delivery was made on time and everything arrived in great condition. I am absolutely elated with the amazing services they provided.

I had a great experience with First nation moving system!! We had an emergency move this week and this company was able to help us out quickly and get us a crew two days later. Their manager was thorough and made sure that we were set up for success. We got a call the day prior and an hour before they arrived. They showed up earlier so that they could start the move right on schedule. I was still on a work call and the team graciously allowed me to finish my call. They kept the furniture moving with little guidance and everything went smoothly without a hitch. I needed to re-organize a few pieces after seeing it placed and they were great sports in allowing me to design with them there. I’d definitely hire them again if I need movers! I recommend these guys for anyone who wants seamless service for a stressful time.

I would recommend First nation moving system to anyone (and in fact already have recommended to a friend). I used them for a long distance move, and asked for both packing and moving services. Their prices are comparable to competitors, and they were super responsive to more detailed questions I had leading up to confirming our appointment. The movers called 30 minutes prior to arrival, arrived a few minutes before the appointment window started (which was wonderful), walked me through the process and then got right to work. They were efficient and yet quite careful. In unpacking I realized that everything even remotely delicate was wrapped thoroughly in paper and carefully packed in the boxes. I had a particularly challenging sofa to get out of the stairwell and they persisted in figuring how to get it out and into the moving truck. The day I moved also happened to be raining quite heavily, and they were careful to keep everything covered and as dry as they possibly could during the move. Overall they made the unpleasant experience of moving quite a bit easier and I highly recommend this company.

FIRST NATION MOVING SYSTEM (FNMS) is the worst mover I was ever forced to experience, based on 13 moves over more than 40 years, which included two international overseas moves. FNMS totally failed to meet the promises and written commitments they made. And their pricing was completely based on fraud. FNMS has a very deceitful and slick operative by the name of Noa, who is very prompt, efficient, and enthusiastic in soliciting your money — making many promises and assurances. Yet, she follows up on nothing and blatantly and outright lies. Worse yet, after the disastrous move, Noa would no longer answer any of my calls or emails. My move should have been a rather simple affair, moving a studio apartment from NJ to MD. From my first contact with FNMS, I made clear that the most critical part of my move was that a few large pieces of furniture would have to be delivered to a storage facility located just 4 miles from the new location and that all other articles were to be delivered to a single-family home. Noa assured me (in several phone calls and even by email) that this would not present any problem whatsoever. When the delivery arrived at the home, the delivery crew said they knew nothing about a drop-off of the large furniture pieces at another location and refused to do it. On an immediate call to Noa while the delivery crew was still at the home, she said she would look into it. I never heard from her again. And it was the last contact I ever had with her and have been unable to reach her since she no longer answers my phone nor my emails. I was forced to use and pay a reliable local mover to move the large furniture pieces into storage – a service I paid FNMS to do. I contracted with FNMS primarily because of Noa’s assurances that the two locations for delivery would not be a problem. But this is not even the worst of it. The first estimate I had was that the shipment would be 480 cubic feet at $3.50 per cubic foot for an “all inclusive” move. On a re-estimate based on adding just a few more items, the new estimate became 665 cubic feet. I thought that this was an overestimate and I was told that I would only be charged for the actual space used once the truck was loaded. Another slick FNMS employee by the name of Carlos (who supervised the packing at the apartment), before even beginning the packing, thought the shipment would be more than 650 CF, when I asked for confirmation that I would only pay for the space used. When the truck was loaded, he said the volume was 900 CF for which I was charged an exorbitant sum of $ 3150 for such a simple move. In an attempt to assure me of the volume, he showed me the loaded 13-foot truck at only the side door, with me having no idea what was in the front or the back. The truck that delivered the goods to my home utilized less than 500 cubic feet of space based on my own determination and measurements., indicating that the 900 CF was the gross overestimate (40 %) that I believed. FNMS in their contract promised “zero charges”’ for handling and labor fees, yet the delivery crew demanded a cash payment of $ 75 for “excess steps” (two small stairwells with six steps each) before anything would be unloaded. FNMS promised “zero charges” for “dismantling & reassembling”. The delivery crew in MD refused to reassemble the furniture that was disassembled in NJ, saying it wasn’t saying that it wasn’t their job and that they were only responsible for delivering the shipment. The crew in NJ disassembled several pieces (presumably to save space?), but unfortunately labelled nothing and put the disassembled parts in scattered box locations . The packers in NJ did not have small book boxes (despite being told that the shipment would require at a minimum of 12 book boxes because of the volume of books), so they mingled books with other items in a scattered arrangement — mixing books with kitchen articles and household items — making the unpacking in MD an ordeal. And nothing was labelled — with an unreadable carbon copy shipping manifest. It took us days to locate all of the parts. Given that Carlos scammed us for the volume and failed on the FNMS promise to reassemble, I now wish that nothing had been taken apart. The crew in NJ also broke the cover plate clip on an $ 800 desk chair, and notified me at the time, handing me the broken piece, without apology or an indication as to how this was to be fixed. FNMS promised that all furniture would be wrapped and padded, but some pieces including the $ 800 desk chair was not. In fact, if it wasn’t for our alertness, the delivery truck would have driven away with the $ 800 desk chair (unwrapped, scuffed, and damaged) since it was packed in the truck adjacent to my articles, but not with it. Lastly, several items were never delivered and are missing, including two long aluminum bed frame rails making the bed unusable, and four shelves from a book case making it equally unusable, and an unknown number of boxes that contained very expensive technical books. I begged Noa (in emails) to contact the contracted long distance moving company to see if the missing items were still on the truck or misdelivered to another address, but she never responded. The delivery crew would not even remove and dispose of the wrapping material debris (tape and cardboard), leaving it in the front of the house. Some great “all inclusive” service ! FIRST NATION MOVING SYSTEM is completely unprofessional and, in my mind, run by a bunch of scam artists and crooks.
